Educational Support » Mission & Service » Service


As part of a Christian Catholic Lasallian ministry, the service program at St. Joe's is directly influenced by the belief that service, faith, and justice are inextricably linked. Christian service is not just an accumulation of hours - but a process of preparation, action, and reflection.
Students are invited to follow the example of Jesus, our Brother, and stand in Solidarity with their Brothers at St. Joe's, especially with those on the margins of society in our greater WNY community. Through the service program, students will have the opportunity to develop new talents and commit to projects about which they are passionate. Students are required to complete twenty hours of service per year.
Lasallian Youth:
Lasallian Youth provides an opportunity for students to fulfill their service requirement during the school year. After school on many Thursdays throughout the year, students from all grade levels gather in the Campus Ministry Center for faith building and are then transported to St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy in Buffalo to prepare food for impoverished and underserved communities.  This program begins each September. This is a flexible opportunity that does not require weekly participation by students.
